Comments on Poll Everywhere 

“Polling tools like PollEverywhere remove the barrier of people not realizing that they don’t understand something, or for those are reluctant to share their confusion publicly. PollEverywhere also has features to support team collaboration, asynchronous and/or synchronous polling, and can integrate with a learning management system (LMS). I primarily use PollEverywhere for formative assessment, allowing people to respond anonymously to the questions being posed. I subscribe to the Present plan, which allows me to have up to 700 people responding at one time on a given poll question. People in an education context who needed to create reports and access archived poll responses would likely need to go with an Individual Instructor premium account, or department/university-wide plan.” Bonni Stachowiak, producer and host of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast, USA, 2022

“Easy way to engage audience” Hasnain Zafar, Elearning Manager, Malaysia, 2020

“Easy to embed activities to engage audience and is linked to Google Slides.” Eunice, Adult Educator, Singapore, 2020

“This far the best real-time student activation/survey tool I know. I use it to stimulate discussion and to collect instant feedback of the student perceptions of the subject matter” Sami S, Principal lecturer in Physics in university of applied sciences, Finland, 2020

“Use for formative assessment; gauging audience knowledge, initiates discussions.” Assistant Professor, USA, 2010

“I love this tool, because it easily allows you to incorporate active learning activities into your classroom to increase student engagement and motivation, using devices students already have (phones/computers/tablets).” Instructional Designer, Canada, 2019
